The Grader Cometh

Two weeks after my road was last ploughed, I can drive it again.

The driver said he nearly couldn’t do it because of the snowmachines that had packed down the road.  The next stage would have been to hire a cat at $200 an hour – it would have taken much longer and I would have had to pay for road time as well.  As it was, it took an hour and a half.  I will get the bill in a couple of weeks.

Now my yard looks like a city supermarket car park with piles of dirty snow everywhere.

I can go for mail again tomorrow.
